Меня внезапно разбудил
Тяжёлый топот ног…
Быть может, слон к нам приходил,
А может, носорог?
Сбылась мечта моей семьи,
Нам пианино привезли –
Припев: Мы купили пианино,
Сколько клавиш у него!…
Мы купили пианино,
Интересно, для кого?
Папа занят, мама тоже,
Остаёмся – я и дед.
Только мы играть не можем,
Потому, что слуха нет!
are russian letters better than latin ones?
Ну и где мой пост? :(
Говорю что хорошая песенка.
of course not. Latin alphabet is the most efficient alphabet in the world.
Very good song!
I would like some reasoning to back up this absurd claim. What do you mean by "most efficient in the world?" An alphabet can hardly be said to be "better" or "worse" in the abstract, only in reference to writing a specific language and all the complexities of spelling that come along with it[*].
Do you mean it uses the least space to represent a language?
That cannot be the case, a non-alphabetic logography will always use less space. And what of English spelling? Look at words like "queue." That isn't space efficient at all. What about English sounds like "ch" and "th" that the Latin alphabet is forced to use digraphs to write? A different alphabet could have additional letters for those (Additionally, a number of Latin letters are redundant even for writing Latin itself, which it was made for.)
Do you mean it is the fastest to learn?
That requires empirical data to demonstrate, and would also be highly dependent on the language you are using it for, as well as what spelling system is in place. English writing in particular is certainly far from efficient to learn. Some other languages are far more suited for the Latin alphabet by comparison.
Do you mean it is the fastest to read?
This once again requires empirical data, but I admit that Latin is one of the more easily readable alphabets. The letterforms are mostly unambiguous and are coherent enough in their design for the eye to be able to quickly scan and recognize words.
[*]This is one of the few language-independent ways of judging an alphabet or other writing system.
Whether Latin is "the most efficient" in this regard is highly debatable, there are some constructed scripts that have been designed to maximize readability. I am also not familiar with every writing system in the world and can hardly comment on them.
The Cyrillic alphabet is by far superior for writing Russian, it has letters to accommodate sounds that the Latin alphabet lacks letters to represent. For writing English, it would probably be completely unsuitable. Ideally, every language would have a separate writing system optimized for their various idiosyncrasies.
in eng more concrete way for thinking maybe, like a constructor, maybe its newbie feeling, в рус - я не верю что у меня получится держать все правила и исключения в голове, а по наитию ну как то не очень.
